Re: Traveling with an IR Horse

Hi Meghan. I would keep everything as is food wise.  Is the trailer set up so that they can access water through out the 6 hours? If not, are you able to take a water break and offer them some time to rest at the 3 hour mark? I don't know if Napoleon has sore feet or not, but if he does, deeply bedding the trailer space and/or shipping him with supportive boots could be helpful too. During the 'downtime" part of the trip will you be in a position to exercise him at all? That is helpful too in keeping everything as close to home life as possible. Hope this helps and have a great trip!
